What’s For Dinner: Zesty Crock Pot Chicken with Couscous

Monday night’s dinner idea was a simple crock pot recipe. Zesty Crock Pot Chicken served with Couscous. It will be on our family’s weekly menu again! Oh my goodness, the house smelt sooo good when I walked through the front door. Yes, it’s another one of those great make-ahead meals that can be prepped and placed in the refrigerator the night before to marinate.

For this recipe, I used the regular chicken breasts (boneless would worked just as well) that were on sale this past week at our local Raley’s grocery store.  Perfect family meal time deal and at $0.99 a pound you can’t go wrong!

Simply Couscous recipe:

Use a box or bag of couscous. Cook according to package directions, except instead of using water,  I used the broth from the chicken. Couscous cooks very quickly, making it a perfect side dish to any meal.

Crock pot recipes are perfect for busy cooks. Cooking dinner after a long day is something a lot of busy families don’t look forward to, so they end up eating unhealthy take out food or they throw something in the microwave just to get dinner over and done with. A great slow cooker recipe and a crockpot will solve the dinner dilemma.

There are an incredible amount of recipes for tasty main dishes, side dishes and desserts that are easy to make using your crock pot. You can get everything ready in the crock pot in the morning, and then walk in the door in the evening to a wonderful home cooked meal.

  1. Not a fan of couscous though. Perhaps basmati rice would go better with the chicken for me.

  2. Basmati rice would also be very good with this dish. Couscous doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, but it works well as a base for vegetable or meat dishes. It also mixes beautifully into salads and can be flavored with herbs like coriander, basil or mint, or even studded with fruit like raisins or apricots. It’s a very neutral — and nutritious — base for all sorts of dishes.
